Well, we are surrounded by broodies Naomi, our OEG mix has settled in the old wooden shed with two of her own eggs, and 3 foster standard eggs. she's been brooding since last night. and this morning, the red and white hen whos been layin in the feed room has started settling on her 6 or so remaining eggs(3 eggs were fostered to Naomi) and 3 somehow got cracked, so we pitched them. ALSO, I /think/ that Stencil, my fawn and white runner duck is trying, or atleast has fantasies of brooding, because she set my muscovies nest this morning for about 30 minutes O_O. I hope the two broody hens work out and we get baby peepers, AND if Stencil's gonna set I wish she would for longer than 30 minutes question though, I have one of what I think is Sages egg, that i was gonna stick in the bator, but would it be ok to set the duck egg under the broody red hen??, would she stick around the extra 7 days til the duck egg hatched?? then if she did I'd have to take the duckling away right??
